The following is said order as passed: 
Whereas, Although numerous orders and ordinances 
have been passed by the City Council during the pasl 
six years to cause the Chicago Surface Lmes to com- 
ply with the provisions of the 1907 traction ordi- 
nances designed to provide transportation facilities 
adequate for the growth of the City, very little addi- 
tional rolling stock has been placed in service and but 
a small percentage of the track extensions provided 
for in the 1907 ordinances has been constructed, with 
the result that transportation facilities in Chicago are 
• entirely inade-quate and are many years behind the 
growth of the City and tbe improvement schedule con- 
tained in the traction ordinances; and 

Whereas, The State Public Utilities Commission is 
endeavoring to take from the City Council of Chicago 
whatver rights and authority it has to compel the 
company to live up to the terms of its contract with 
the City of Chicago in the so-called 1907 contract or- 
dinances; therefore, be it 

Ordered, That the City Council of the City of Chicago 
hereby respectfully requests the State Public Utilities 
Commission to forthwith compel the Chicago Surface 
Lines to place in service a sufficient number of cars 
to accommodate the people who desire to patronize the 
cars in travelling to and from their homes and places 
of business, and to make the track extensions demand- 
ed by the growth of the. City and provided for in the 
1907 traction ordinances.

Municipal Home Rule and the Revision of the 
Constitution. 

1. The Constitution op 1870: 

The constitution of 1870 has no separate article deal- 
ing with municipal government, but there are scattered 
provisions relating to cities. In the main, these relate 
to the prohibition of special legislation, taxation for 
corporate, purposes, municipal indebtedness, municipal 
aid to private corporations or sectarian institutions, 
and the construction of street railroads. 

The provisions relating to special legislation, taxa- 
tion and street railroads directly or indirectly secure 
to cities a certain measure of self-determination, but 
the spirit of all the provisions mentioned is primarily 
restrictive, and municipal home rule was not, in 1870, 
a prominent issue. 

Constitutional city autonomy appeared in 1875 in the 
constitution of Missouri, and it is stated that there are 
at present, twelve states that have hom-e rule provi- 
sions in their constitutions. 

2. Statutory or Constitutional Home Rule: 
Under the constitution of 1870, particularly as amend- 
ed in 1905, the legislature has the power to give to the 
City of Chicago practically all the home rule that is 
covered by present demands. 

Legislative home rule is, however, subject at any 
time to legislative change. Under the amendment of 



December 1, 1919. 



REPORTS OF COMMITTEES. 



1463 



1905, it is true tiiat special legislation for Chicago can- 
not be enacted or changed without a local referendum; 
the legislature may, however, still proceed under its 
power to legislate for cities generally, and such legis- 
tion does not require a referendum. 

Constitutional home rule, therefore, gives a security 
and guaranty of permanence, which cannot be attained 
under any statutory system. 

Constitutional provision for home rule has the fur- 
ther advantage that it permits the adaptation of other 
constitutional provisions, particularly those relating 
to county government, to the desired scheme of home 
rule. 

The principal argument against constitutional home 
rule is its rigidity. There is the danger that the con- 
cession of home rule will be qualified by conditions and 
limitations which will prove to be inconvenient im- 
pediments, particularly as the precise scope and impli- 
cation of qualifying terms cannot be readily foreseen. 
Most of the difficulties of modern complex constitutions 
arise from such inadvertent limitations. 

However, even if statutory home rule- were abstractly 
preferable, the demand for constitutional recognition 
is a factor which cannot, practically, be ignored. 

The danger that has been pointed out can be met by 
great watchfulness on the part of those who are 
charged with the drafting of the home rule clauses, 
or are called upon to guard the city's interests in the 
Constitutional Convention. Constitutional home rule 
clauses must be constructed upon the principle of the 
open door. Guarantees against abuse should be found 
in administrative checks and safeguards rather than in 
absolute limitations and prohibitions. If this should 
be a guiding principle in all constitution making, it is 
absolutely essential in a constitutional provision, the 
main purpose of which is enabling and not restrictive. 

3. General Constitution Home Rule, or Special 
Provision for Chicago: 

The question whether the constitution should grant 
home rule to all cities, or to Chicago, specially, is not 
one of a sharp alternative, for the one does not ex- 
clude the other. Chicago may join forces with other 
municipalities of the State in working for general 
home rule provisions and, at the same time, ask for 
separate provision. Missouri confines home rule to met- 
ropolitan cities, and until 1912 home rule in Colorado 
was likewise confined to Denver. In most home rule 
states, the provision is general for cities, or for cities 
above a moderate size. But conditions in Illinois are 
unique. No other constitutional home rule State has 
a city that compares with Chicago^, nor a similar dis- 
parity between the largest city and the city of the next 
size. The financial problem of Chicago, and the prob- 
lem of the relation to other taxing authorities has no 
parallel in any other municipality. Moreover, expe- 
rience since 1870 has shown that special provision for 
the City of Chicago cannot be altogether avoided, and if 
directly impossible, will be made by indirection. The 
amendment of 1905 recognizes this situation and makes 
distinct constitutional provision for Chicago. Under 
the circumstances, it may be expected that the coming 
Constitutional Convention will pursue the same policy. 

4. General Considerations Concerning Home Rule : 
Almost from the beginning of State government, Illi- 
nois has permitted Chicago as well as other cities to 
exercise self-government in strictly municipal affairs. 



and although the legislative grant of charf/;r powers 
has observed the method of enumeration of specific 
powers, the enumeration has been reasonably liberal, 
and Chicago has enjoyed a much wider measure of 
home rule than the City of New York. There is no dif-* 
ference of opinion about continuing this traditional 
scope of home rule, and in this respect the principal 
possibility of change is from the method of enumera- 
tion to the method of a grant in general terms. The 
desirability of this seems to be generally conceded. 

It is equally generally conceded that in certain re- 
spects the city must conform to state law. This is true 
above all of the principles laid down in the constitu- 
tion itself; the conditions of the electoral franchise, 
election by ballot, the guaranties of the bill of rights, 
etc. Moreover, no one contends that municipal home 
rule should_ extend to controlling the law of wills or of 
trusts, of marriage or divorce, of tort or contract, or 
of homicide. Some constitutions make the home rule 
-power expressly subject to the general criminal laws 
of the State. In any event, there is an undisputed field 
of state legislation, as there is a conceded field of local 
power. 

Between the two, lies a field that is controversial. 
In this field, there is a demand for local independence 
to the utmost and a sentiment in favor of keeping the 
existing State co'ntrol unimpaired. The difference of 
opinion is very largely a political one. So far as it is 
poltical, one who is called upon to advise the City 
Council from a legal point of view, should not obtrude 
his own opinion. The question for legal purposes must 
be not what is desirable, but what is practicable and 
workable. 

But the observance of the limits of the practicable 
will also tend to narrow down the province of the 
controversial, and this for two reasons: 

First— It will appear that the extreme demand for 
home rule encounters difficulties of definition and ad- 
justment to State powers which make it almost im- 
possible to find an acceptable formula of constitutional 
recognition; in other words, it cannot be obtained 
without inviting legal uncertainty and confusion. 

Second — The constitution will be serviceable in pro- 
portion to the generality of its provisions. Its home 
rule clauses should avoid fixing affirmative policies, 
but simply aft'ord the opportunity for the freest action 
in the future. If this principle is adhered to, some of 
the most controversial issues can be kept out of the 
discussion. 

The following propositions will be based upon the 
widest policy of home rule deemed practicable; not by 
way of advocating such policy, but in order to afford 
the opponents as well as the friends of such policy, the 
opportunity of dealing with legally and constitution- 
ally formulated issues. 

'5. three aspects of home rule : 

For the purpose of considering the relation of city 
powers to state legislation, it is advisable to distin- 
guish three phases of local autonomy: 

Welfare, Finance and Organization. 

Welfare includes public order, health, safety, comfort 
and convenience, and the common material and social 
interests of the people of the city so far as they can be 
legitimately furthered by municipal action whether by 
way of service or by way of regulation. Finance in-

eludes taxation and indebtedness. Organization com- 
prehends the entire machinery of city action assuming 
that welfare and financial powers are vested in the city 
as such, and that it remains to be determined by what 
organs the city is to act. 

This division is important because detailed examina- 
tion shows that the practicable measure of concession of 
home rule varies in three fields: City and state welfare 
powers cannot be legally differentiated with precision; 
city and state finance can be theoretically segregated, 
but imperative practical considerations call for com- 
bined action and for mutual adjustment which must be 
controlled by the state; city organization on the other 
hand can, within limits which are capable of definition, 
be entirely self determined without sacrificing or even 
touching vital interests of the state. It is in the mat- 
ter of organization that advocates of home rule may take 
their stand and make an issue with their opponents. 

6. "WELFARE POWERS : 

As regards welfare powers, the demand should be for 
a constitutional recognition of home rule in the broad- 
est terms. The formula adopted in 1907 may be fol- 
lowed, since it was fully discussed at that time. The 
difference from the present law would be that the grant 
of power would be in general terms instead of by way 
of enumeration and that the grant would be constitu- 
tional instead of statutory. These welfare powers 
would, however, be subject to state law. No attempt 
should he made to define a sphere of local welfare ac==- 
tion entirely emancipated from state law. Experience 
has shown that attempts of this kind have been pro- 
ductive of the greatest confusion. Thus in California, 
the constitution said that cities should be subject to 
state laws except in municipal affairs, and the result- 
ing difficulties were such that the provision had to be 
changed a few years ago. A general phase which is 
beneficial in a grant of subordinate powers is inappro- 
priate in a grant of exclusive powers. 

Writers have made a distinction between matters of 
general concern and matters of local concern, but in 
practical application, the two run into each other. 
The operation of intra-urban utilities would generally 
be conceded to be local but what about the forms and 
duration of franchises, the hours of labor of employes, 
segregation of races, etc. Local and general interests 
touch each other at every point. It is, however, a 
reasonable requirement that whatever state legislation 
supersedes local legislation should be of general opera- 
tion throughout the state; for if it applies to the city 
specially, the presumption is that it is a matter of 
local concern. Special legislation for Chicago will be 
unnecessary if the city has sufficiently wide powers. In 
the past, such legislation has been found necessary, and 
under the rigid prohibition of special laws for cities, 
such special legislation had to be enacted under the 
guise of general law qualified by conditions of classifi- 
cation. There should be in the future a prohibition of 
such special legislation in disguise; and exception may, 
however, be admitted for special legislation to which 
the city 'expressly consents. 

The demand for exemption from special legislation 
should include another safeguard, namely protection 
from commission rules which apply to Chicago special- 
ly. State interference by special legislation is not like- 
ly to be a great menace to home rule. But if the state 
enacts a general law to be administered by a state com- 



mission and gives to that commission power to make 
orders of limited application, the city's autonomy is 
seriously threatened. The Public Utilities Commission 
illustrates this. An administrative Commission, acting 
quasi judicially, and with the assistance of experts, 
is better equipped for relief of grievances than the City 
Council or a Council Committee, acting as a politi- 
cal body. This particular form of state interference 
needs, therefore, to be guarded against specially. It 
can be done by requiring that where the legislature 
delegates powers of administrative regulation, a regu- 
lation applying to the city specially, should in the^first 
instance proceed from a body representing the city. An 
appeal to a state body should be provided for. 

A proposition oft his character is likely to encounter 
opposition, but it is a legitimate part of homie rule, and 
should at least be considered. 

7. FINANCIAL POWERS : 

(a) The taxing power — 
While it might be contended that the city's taxing 
power may be as independent of the state as the state's 
taxing power is independent of that of the national 
government, that would be a theoretical and not a prac- 
tical position. Imperative practical considerations re- 
quire that the city's taxing power should be subject to 
state law. 

Among the most important of these considerations are 
the following: 

(1) Revenue producing capacity being limited, there 
must be co-ordination between local and state taxation. 
Such co-ordination is immeasurably more difficult if it 
has to come from several independent jurisdiction than 
when it can be imposed by one paramount jurisdiction. 

(2) The revenue policy of the state is likely to be 
changed — it is impossible to forsee in what direction; 
therefore, it is impossible to plan at present for an 
independent municipal revenue policy. 

(3) There is objection now to giving to the city, 
absolute discretion in the matter of the tax rate; there 
will be stronger objection to giving it absolute discre- 
tion in the matter of selecting sources of revenue, m- 
volving, as this does, income taxes, inheritance taxes, 
unearned increment taxes, etc. 

(4) Unrestricted taxing power would inevitably lead 
to the restriction of the objects of municipal expendi- 
ture, which could be done by appropriate legislation 
under the welfare powers. 

(5) Full home rule would mean separate adminis- 
tration; it would, however, be very inconvenient to 
have city taxes assessed and collected separately from 
other taxes, so long a,s the basis of taxation is the same. 

(6) The enforcement of the general tax on real 
property depends on liens which cannot be created by 
municipal action. 

An examination of the situation in other stales shows 
that municipal taxing powers are either subject to state 
laws, or that the claim of independence has given rise 
to legal questions of the most intricate character. 

See McBain, the Law and Practice of Municipal Home 
Rule, particularly decisions from Missouri, Minnesota 
and California. 

As a general proposition, the relation of the state to 
the city in matters of taxation should, therefore, be left 
as at present.

REPORTS OF COMMITTEES.

It is proposed, however, to ask for two safeguards : 
The first relates to the tax limits. While the legisla- 
tive power to limit the tax rate is to be continued, it is 
not to be exercised on the principle of the Juul law; 
i. e., by reference to competing tax rates, but independ- 
ently; and for limited periods, the city may fix a higher 
limit with the approval of the Governor and after the 
matter has been considered by the State Tax Commis- 
sion. 

The second relates to the present prohibition of tax- 
ation by the legislature for municipal purposes. This 
is the most important recognition of home rule in the 
present constitution, but should be strengthened by 
giving the city a more effectual veto upon indirect eva- 
sions of the prohibition — particularly through the crea- 
tion of new taxing bodies, and the imposition of burden- 
some obligations. 

These additional safeguards to the City's taxing pow- 
ers have been worked out in collaboration wibh the 
chairman of the Finance Committee and his staff. 

{h)The borrowing power — 

The municipal borrowing pow'er is now controlled by 
constitutional provision. 

The following changes are proposed : 

(1) The borrowing power is made a matter of con- 
stitutional instead of legislative grant. 

(2) The referendum is made a constitutional re- 
quirement. 

(3) The limit of indebtedness, instead of being fixed 
by the constitution is to be fixed by ordinance un- 
alterable for a stated period, subject to the double 
safeguard of the approval by the state tax commission 
and an optional referendum. 

(4) The limit is not to apply to loans incurred for 
the financing of income producing property," and se- 
cured exclusively by such property and incidental 
franchises. 

8. Powers of Organization : 

In the matter of organization, home rule offers the 
least, if any, legal difficulty, provided organization is 
not confused with power. The creation of an office is 
organization; to vest in that office powers of govern- 
ment is to overstep the province of mere organization. 
If the city's governing powers are to be subject to 
law, so must the powers be which are vested in any 
office; but in so far as a power is conceded to the city, 
it may be given absolute discretion in determining the 
organs through which the power is to be exercised. 
The principle of home rule in organization is to as- 
sume that whatever powers are given, are vested in 
the city as such, and that the authority which gives 
the powers does not concern itself with their dis- 
tribution or channels of exercise. 

The important thing in a home rule provision is to 
define clearly what is meant by organization. This 
will not only aid interpretation when the provision has 
become effective, but it will aid discussion and clarify 
issues while the provision is under consideration. 

It should be understood that the power of organi- 
zation is a far reaching one. A few fundamentals, such 
as electoral franchise, election by ballot, the pro- 
hibition of religious tests for holding office, are fixed 
by the constitution and therefore, withdrawn from 
home rule; but such important matters as commission 



or city manager form of government, initiative a.nd 
referendum, and" civil service would he placed within 
the city's exclusive power. Thfre will be differences 
of opinion as to the expediency of granting so much 
autonomy, but there is no legal difficulty about it, and 
in any event, there should be no doubt as to the im- 
plications of absolute home rule. 

On the other ha.nd, it should be made clear that the 
state retains the power to subject city government to 
state control, that official procedure is within the 
city's exclusive power only in so far as it does not im- 
pair private rights, and that the administration of 
justice is a matter of state and not of municipal gov- 
ernment. These matters relate to organization, but 
involve also interests beyond the city's legitimate con- 
trol. 

If the city's power of organization is to be absolute, 
it must override conflicting state legislation. To 
avoid confusion, there must be a clear starting point, 
and this must be found in an autonomous city charter. 
The constitution must, therefore, provide for the fram- 
ing of such a charter, and only provisions made by 
or under such charter will supersede state laws. Con- 
versely, such provisions cannot be superseded by sub- 
sequent sta.te laws. The constitution will also provide 
that the fundamental principles of constitution mak- 
ing are observed in framing the charter. 

Provision should also be made for the possible con- 
solidation of taxing authorities within the County of 
Cook. This may be left to a charter or charter 
amendment, except so far as the County of Cook is 
concerned. The legislature should be especially au- 
thorized to make provision for the consolidation- of 
county and city government, so far as it may be deemed 
desirahle. 

9. Relation to the Present Constitution : 

It is possible that the constitutional convention will 
take warning from the recent experience of New York 
and follow the example of Ohio and Massachusetts, 
and present a series of amendments rather than an en- 
tirely new constitution. 

Even if a new constitution is framed, the provisions 
of the present constitution will very probably be taken 
as the ground work for the new structure. 

In presenting any propositions for the considera- 
tion of the convfention, it will, therefore, be advisable 
to utilize as far as possible, existing provisions, at 
least as points of departure. 

This means tha.t present constitutional provisions in 
any manner securing municipal home rule, should be 
preserved and, if necessary, be strengthened. Provis- 
ions of this kind are those preventing legislative taxa- 
tion for corporate purposes, and those requiring local 
consent for street railroads. 

It will, on the other ha.nd, be necessary to recognize 
existing constitutional restrictions on local action, and 
to relax these restrictions so far as experience has 
demonstrated the need of relaxation. This applies 
particularly to the limitation on indebtedness. 

Where constitutional recognition has been found to 
be necessary for municipal action, such recognition 
should be confirmed, so in the matter of special as- 
sessment and special taxation. 

Where constitutional recognition is not wide enough, 
it should be broadened, so in the matter of excess con-

demnatidn and possibly— although with great cau- 
tion — of zoning anf billboard regulation. 

The very principle of constitutional home rule re- 
quires a change from the present constitution in this 
respect, that municipal powers become a matter of 
direct grant by the constitution, instead of being, as 
at present, purely a matter of statutory grant and leg- 
islative favor. 

If special provisions are sought for the City,--of Chi- 
cago, it will be advisable to ask for a separate home 
rule article for Chicago, giving all the powers and 
limitations, even if tha.t involves the reiteration of some 
of the general home rule clauses. 

It would, on the other hand, be preferable to placp 
any provisions broadening the police power in the 
bill of rights. 

It will probably a.ppear that the amendment of 1903 
should be revised -nd incorporated in the Home Rule 
article.

REPORTS AND COMMUNICATIONS FROM CITY 
OFFICERS. 



Veto. 



Manager of Properties in the Fire Department: 
Definition of Duties. 

The Mayor submitted the following veto message : 

Office op the Mayor,| 
Chicago, December 8, 1919. !■ 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago: 

Gentlemen — I return herewith, without my approv- 
al, an ordinance passed by your Honorable Body at 
your meeting of December 1, 1919, and appearing on 
page 1492 of the Journal of the Proceedings of the City 
Council of said date, defining the duties of the Man- 
ager of Properties of the Fire Department. 

I withhold my approval of the said ordinance be- 
cause the General Ordinances of the City establishing 
the Fire Department as an executive branch of the 
City Government provide that all subordinate officers, 
assistants, clerks and employes who shall be employed 
in the Fire Department shall be subject to such rules 
and regulations and shall perform such duties as shall 
be prescribed or required of them by the Fire Mar- 
shal or the ordinances of .the City. 

I believe the Fire Marshal has ample power and au- 
thority under the general ordinances to define the du- 
ties of the Manager of Properties, and I do not believe 
that it will be for the best interests of the Fire De- 
partment or of the City for the Council to confer, by 
ordinance, upon a subordinate employe of the Fire De- 
partment duties that the general ordinances of the City 
impose upon the Fire Marshal himself, and I with- 
hold my approval of the said ordinance for the further 
reason that I do not believe that any civilian employe 
of the Fire Department should have conferred upon 
him, by ordinance, the power to assign or recommend 
to the Fire Marshal the manner in which the fire- 
fighting apparatus of the City should be assigned or 
distributed. I believe that all such duties should be 
performed by some one belonging to the active fire- 
fighting force of the City. 

I, therefore, recommend that the vote by which the 
said ordinance was passed be reconsidered and that 
the same be placed on file. 

Yours very truly, 
(Signed) Wm. Hale Thompson, 

Mayor. 

Alderman Armitage moved to reconsider the vote by 
which said vetoed ordinanct; was passed. 
The motion prevailed. 

Alderman Clark moved to refer said ordinance to the 
Committee on Schools, Fire and Civil Service. 
The motion prevailed. 



Veto. 

Ofiice Secretary of the Fire Department: Definition of 
Duties. 

The Mayor submitted the following veto message: 

Office of the Mayor,) 
Chicago, December 8, 1919. j 
To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago: 

Gentlemen — I return herewith, without my approv- 
al, an ordinance passed by your Honorable Body at 
the meeti-ng held December 1, 1919, and appearing on 
pages 1492 and 1493 of the Journal of the Proceedings 
of the City Council of said date, purporting to define 
the duties of the "Office Secretary, of the Fire Depart- 
ment," and repealing that part of Section 876 of the 
General Ordinances of the City creating the office of 
Secretary of the Fire Department. 

I withhold my approval of the said ordinance be- 
cause I believe that under the General Ordinances of 
the City the Fire Marshal has sufficient authority to 
define the duties that he desires the Secretary of the 
Fire Department to perform without the necessity of 
an ordinance of this kind. Section 1 of this ordinance 
fails to create the position of "Office Secretary of the 
Fire Department", while Section 2 of it expressly re- 
peals that portion of Section 876 of the General Ordi- 
nances of the City that create the position of Secretary 
of the Fire Department. I believe it will be best for 
all concerned for the Fire Marshal to have the power, 
unhampered by ordinance, of defining what duties a 
person holding the position of Secretary of the Fire 
Department shall perform in addition to those already 
imposed upon him by the General Ordinances of the 
City. 

I, therefore, recommend that the vote by which the 
said ordinance was passed be reconsidered and that the 
ordinance be placed on file. 
(Signed) - Wm. Hale Thompson, 

Mayor. 

Alderman Armitage moved to reconsider the vote by 
which said vetoed ordinance was passed. 

The motion prevailed. 

Alderman P'assmore moved to refer said ordinance 
to the Committee on Schools, Fire and Civil Service. 
The motion prevailed. 



Traction Commission: Appointments of Members. 

The Mayor submitted the following communication, 
which was ordered published and place on on file : 

Offce of the Mayor, 
Chicago, December 8, 1919. j 
To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago: 

Gentlemen — This will advise you that in harmony 
with my message to your Honorable Body dated Sep- 
tember 9, 1919, proposing the formation of a public cor- 
poration to be managed by trustees elected by the voters 
to furnish adequate local transportation to the people of 
Chicago for a five-cent fare, and under authority con- 
ferred upon me by an ordinance passed by your Hon- 
orable Body November 10, 1919, I have appointed the 



December 8, 1919. 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



1497 



following named persons who, together with an engi- 
neer to be recommended by them, shall constitute a 
Traction Commission, as provided for in said ordi- 
nance : 

Samuel A. Ettelson, Corporation Counsel, (with- 
out compensation). 

Charles R. Francis, Commissioner of Public Works, 
(without compensation). 

Alderman John P. Garner, former Commissioner of 
Public Service, (without compensation). 

P. H. Moynihan, former Alderman, (without com- 
pensation) . 

I have withheld appointment of the Traction Com- 
mission to see whether or not the State Public Utili- 
ties Commission would follow the ruling of the Circuit 
Court of Sangamon County by restoring the five cent 
fare to the people of Chicago. This they have failed to 
do by their ruling handed down on November 25, 1919. 
It seems that the traction barons have reached into 
high places, and I believe it is hopeless to look for per- 
manent relief to any source other than the plan which 
will place the local transportation system of Chicago 
in the hands of the people. 

The duty of this Traction Commission is to formu- 
late plans and recommend such enabling legislation as 
will provide for a Transportation District and a five- 
cent fare. I have appointed this Commission with the 
confident belief that the men appointed will, within 
the time limited by the ordinance, (nine months) pres- 
ent a plan which will accomplish the objects set forth 
in my message to the City Council on SeptembeT 9, 
1919. 

In making these appointments I have had in view 
the needs of our people who live in the outlying dis- 
tricts and who suffer most from inadequate street car 
service. Mr. Garner, who lives on the west side, has 
had experience with traction problems in his former 
capacity as Commissioner of- Public Service. Mr. 
Moynihan, who lives on the south side, was a member 
of the City Council when the 1907 contract-ordinances 
were pending, and introduced the amendment which 
was adopted providing for universal transfers, there- 
by guaranteeing every citizen of Chicago a five-cent 
fare to any part of the City. Mr. Francis, who lives 
on the north side, is the present Commissioner of Pub- 
lic Works of the City of Chicago, and as such is in 
full charge of our streets. 

You are further advised that a meeting of said Com- 
mission has been called to meet in the Mayor's office 
on Tuesday, December 16, 1919. 

Respectfully submitted, 
(Signed) Wm. Hale Thompson, 

Mayor.

Sale of Red Cross Christmas Seals. 

The Clerk presented the following proclamation, 
which was ordered published and placed on file: 

Office of the Mayor,| 
Chicago, December .3, 1919. y 

proclamation. 

The Christmas season is at hand, and the Christmas 
spirit is abroad, which inclines the heart of mankind 
to deeds of charity and kindness toward their fellow 
men, recalling the benediction, "Peace on Earth; Good 
Will Toward Men". 

For years the people of Chicago have given most 
generous support to the fight that is being made 
through various organized agencies against tubercu- 
losis and have purchased most liberally of the Red 
Cross Christmas Seals, the funds from the sale of which 
have been devoted to anti-tuberculosis work. 

I have been assured by those in charge of the sales 
of the Red Cross Christmas Seals that a substantial 
amount of this money will be spent in Chicago for the 
benefit of the Chicago children in the maintenance of 
the fresh air schools for tuberculosus children. 

As Mayor of the City of Chicago, I deem it my duty 
to call attention of the people to this great work and 
to urge that, when the Christmas Seals are placed upon 
sale, they buy generously and give to this movement 
their most earnest and cordial financial support.

Whereas, The suspension of operation of the sixty- 
one miles of tunnel lines underlying the central busi- 
ness district of Chicago, due to an unfortunate contro- 
versy between the Chicago Tunnel Company and its 
employes, has seriously affected all the large commer- 
cial houses and buildings, making the removal of cin- 
ders and refuse almost impossible, diverting thousands 
of tons of freight traffic of these commercial houses 
daily from the underground bore to the streets of Chi- 
cago; and 

Whereas, The firms affected are not only experienc- 
ing great inconvenience, but the congestion of our 
"loop" streets, already overburdened, is being added 
to in the transfer of tunnel freight to the various rail- 
roads, thus impeding traffic in the downtown streets 
of Chicago; and 

Whereas, The City Hall and County Building use 
the tunnel lines for the removal of cinders and refuse, 
operation of which ceased November 28th, last; there- 
fore, be it 

Resolved, In the interest of the public welfare in re- 
lieving the congestion of our "loop" streets and to pre- 
vent further loss and inconvenience to the large num- 
ber of commercial houses dependent upon the tunnel 
lines for freight, cinder and refuse removal, that His 



Honor the Mayor be authorized to appoint a committee 
of members of the City Council to make an immediate 
investigation of the tunnel controversy and to use their 
best efforts to bring about a settlement between the 
company and its employes that will insure the resump- 
tion of operation of the tunnel lines. 

Unanimous consent was given for consideration of 
said resolution. 

Alderman T. A. Hogan moved to adopt said resolu- 
tion. 

The motion prevailed. 

Subsequently, in connection with the foregoing reso- 
lution, the Mayor submitted the following communica- 
tion, which was ordered published and placed on file :

to the Committee on Finance: 

Department op Finange,| 
Chicago, December 4, 1919. J 
Committee on Finance, Hon. John A. Richert, chair- 
man: 

Dear Sir: 

We beg to hand you herewith communication ad- 
dressed to the City Council, in conformity with Sec- 
tion 5 of Part Two of Article XII of "An Act to provide 



for the Incorporation of Cities and Villages," requiring 
the City Comptroller to advertise for bids from regular- 
ly established national and state banks doing business 
in the city of Chicago, for interest upon money of the 
City deposited in the respective banks. 

From a tabulation of the bids, it appears the rate of 
interest is practically the same as it was during the 
current year in other words, the City receives slightly 
in excess of 3% on all its money except such money 
as remains in the Active Bank, on which the interest 
rate paid is 2%%. 

There were 15 new bidders, evidently recently in- 
corporated banks. Five of the small banks that were 
depository banks during the current year did not bid, 
so that the net result is an increase of 10 banks, mak- 
ing a total of 117, as against 107 at present. 

We would respectfully suggest that these bids be 
accepted at the meeting of the City Council on Monday 
next, in order that we may have sufficient time to ex- 
amine the bonds of the banks which the Council sees 
fit to designate as depositaries. 

Very truly yours, 

(Signed) George F. Harding, 

Comptroller. 

Department of Finance,^ 
Chicago, December 2, 1919. | 
To the Honorable, the Mayor and Aldermen, in City 

Council Assembled: 
Gentlemen : 

In conformity with Section 5 of Part Two of Article 
XII of "An Act to provide for the Incorporation of 
Cities and Villages," requiring the City Comptroller to 
advertise for bids from regularly established national 
and state banks doing business in the city, for interest 
upon the money of the City so deposited in the City 
banks and in pursuance of the ordinance passed there- 
under, — advertisement was made for bids for interest 
on average daily balances, for interest on money of 
the City as may be deposited and permitted to remain 
without diminution for periods of at least 30, 60 or 9u 
days and from such banks as can qualify under the 
ordinances of the City as Active Banks, for the fiscal 
year 1920, for interest which they will pay on the 
average daily balances, to be computed and paid in the 
same way as on City money deposited in any such bank 
if the same is designated as an Active Bank, — such 
bid and the rate offered to be separate and distinct from 
the rate of interest which such bank will pay on time 
deposits. 

In accordance with the advertisement, bids were 
opened Dec. 1, 1919, at 11 A. M. The following bids 
were received :

Office of the Mayor, | 
Chicago, December 22, 19i9.j 
To the Honorable, the City Council! 

Gentlemen — I transmit herewith a communication 
from Mr. Jarvis Hunt, the architect, for the new Tribune 
Building to be located at Michigan boulevard and Austin 
avenue, and a copy of my answer to him. Also a report 
and data from the Commissioner of Buildings. 

I desire to ca.ll to your attention the fact that it is 
contended under the ordinances the height of buildings 
is not restricted to 200 feet, but that a building in the 
shape of a tower may be built 400 feet high and used 
for offices, etc. If it was the Council's intention to 
restrict the height of buildings to 200 feet, I believe the 
building ordinances should be amiended so that there 
shall be no misunderstanding in the wording of the 
same. 

Yours respectfully, 

(Signed) Wm. Hale Thompson, 

Mayor.

need of an engine lathe for use at the meter shops of

If this meets with your approval, it is suggested that 
an order reading about as submitted herewith, be

aries and wages of such patrolmen and policewomen

such for the year 1919, whereby a liability of the City 
of Chicago accrued to all such regularly appointed pa- 
trolmen and policewomen who were so employed and 
who served as such during said fiscal year; and

any deficiency to the extent of not more than 880.000.00 
in the fund from which such payment may lawfully be 
made, the same being known by Code designation 30- 
A-3, shall be made up from any other moneys in the 
City Treasury; and the Comptroller and Treasurer are 
hereby authorized and directed to pay such wages and 
report any deficiency arising therefrom to the City 
Council for the purpose of having such deficiency pro- 
vided for by an appropriation as soon as it may law- 
fully be done.

Lawndale Automobile Club,| 
Chicago, December 12, 1919. | 

Mr. Anton J. Cermak, 139 North Clark Street, Chicago, 
Illinois: 

Dear Sir — The Lawndale Auto Club has authorized 
me to urge you to use your influence to reduce the fine 
under the ordinance requiring autoists to stop at boule- 
vard crossings. In most cases the violation is an over- 
sight rather than a willful breach of the law, and a 
fine of five dollars and costs seems to be an" excessive 
penalty for such oversight. 

Anything you can do in this matter will be appre- 
ciated by the Club and motorists in general. 

Respectfully yours, 
(Signed) Joseph F. Polak.

Gas Litigation. 

The Committee on Gas I,itigation submitted the fol- 
lowing report, which was, on motion of Alderman Gapi- 
tain, ordered published and placed on file: 

Chicago, December 21, 1919. 

To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chicago in 
" City Council Assembled: 

Your Committee on Gas Litigation beg leave to sub- 
mit the report as per communications attached and 
request the same to be published and filed. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) H. D. Capitain. 

Chairman. 

The following communications were submitted for 
publication with the foregoing report: 

Chicago, December 2, 1919. 

Honorable Henry D. Capitain, Chairman, Committee on 
Gas Litigation, City Hall, Chicago: 

Dear Sir— In presenting an estimate of the appro- 
priation required for the w^ork to be done under the di- 
rection of the Committee on Gas Litigation during the 
year 1920, it seems advisable to refer to the report 
made about one year ago and printed in the Council 
Proceedings of December 30, 1918. 

It is there pointed out that the work whic'h had been 
done largely under the designation of "gas litigation" 
included a great deal of work outside the court liti- 
gation in the so-called $10,000,000'. refund case. 
This has been particularly true of the work done dur- 
ing the present year and will be true of the work in 
prospect during the year 1920. 

During the present year Judge Torrison handed down 
a decision in the Circuit Court, on April 3, 1919, com- 
pletely sustaining the legal positions taken by Special 
Counsel for the City in endeavoring to enforce the ob- 
ligation of the Gas Company to refund the excess 
charged over what the City contends were reasonable 
rates for gas during the years 1911-1917. At the time 
when this decision was rendered,' Special Counsel for 
the City was continuously engaged before the State 
Public Utilities Commission in the hearings which 
led to an order reducing gas rates, entered July 26, 
1919. Therefore, the prosecution of the Circuit Court 
case was deferred at that time. On September 24 the 
Utilities Commission began a hearing to determine the 
valuation of the property of the Gas Company a,s a 
fairly permanent basis upon which gas rates will be 
fixed in the future. The present rate will expire April 
1, 1920. 

It has been the effort of Special Counsel for the City, 
with the approval of the Committee on Gas Litigation, 
to arrive at some method whereby a review may be 
had in the Supreme Court of the rulings of the Circuit 
Court, which have thus far sustained the City's con- 
tentions, prior to continuing the expense of presenta- 
tion of evidence in the Circuit Court to determine the 



extent of the Company's liability to the consumers. Con- 
ferences have been held between Alderman Capitain 
or Alderman Olsen and Special Counsel for the City on 
one side, and Messrs. Cooke and Sullivan, repre.senting 
the Gas Company, and a method is now being worked 
out wlhich both parties hope may be adequate and 
satisfactory for this purpose. 

It should ])e made clear tliat the work of prepara- 
tion for the Circuit Court case, which has caused so 
large an expenditure of money for -engineering and ac- 
counting service, has been completed and that this 
work has been completed within the appropriations 
made. It should also be made clear that the litigation 
in the Circuit Court andthe work of preparation has a 
value entirely distinct from the prosecution of the Cir- 
cuit Court case and has a permanent value to the gas 
consumers far in excess of the amount of money ex- 
pended. It should also be noted that this work has 
resulted in a saving to gas consumers in an estimated 
amount of $3,000,000.00, as shown in the report print- 
ed December 30, 1918, and a further saving in the re- 
duction of rates in July, 1919, in an amount of at 
least $1,000,000.00. The gas consumers have, there- 
fore, already profited to the extent of $4,000,000.00 
at least, through the work which has been carried on. 
hy the Committee on Gas Litigation, or a profit of ap- 
proximately eight times the amount of the cost of the 
work. The major benefits from this work are, how- 
ever, still to be reaped. Eliminating for the moment 
all consideration of the litigation to obtain refunds, 
let us indicate the importance of the proceedings now 
pending before the Public Utilities Commission. 

The Gas Company is now engaged in presenting evi- 
dence to the Public Utilities Commission of the valu;' 
of its property and is seeking to have a return upon 
I hat value to the extent of 7 per cent or 8 per cent in- 
cluded in the rates for gas. to be charged in the future. 
The Company seeks to have this property valued at its 
cost of reproduction new without depreciation, as of the 
date of July 1, 1919. The amount of this claim in 
dollars and cents cannot be determined until the Com- 
pany's evidence has been completed. Nor can the 
exact amount which the City will contend to be a fair 
rate basis be stated as yet. It is, however, apparent 
that there may be a difference in the amount of $50.- 
000,000.00 between the two contentions. Seven per 
cent of $50,000,000,00 would equal $3,500,000.00 per 
year. It may be said, therefore, that the City, which is 
the only party opposing the Gas Company in this pro- 
ceeding, is fighting to save the gas consumers from an 
unjust tax to the extent of $3,500,000.00 per year. 

Tlie City would be unable to make this fight with 
any reasonable expectation of adequately protecting 
the gas consumers, were it not for the fact that in the 
Circuit Court case, through an order entered by Judge 
Baldwin March 24, 1916, the engineers and accountants 
of the City have had complete access to the books and 
property of the Gas Company for three years, during 
which time they have been able to prepare a complete 
inventory of that property, to make a complete ap- 
praisal of the value of that property, to make a com- 
plete accounting study of the cost of the property and 
of the operating expenses and revenues of the Com- 
pany. This is the work which has cost the City less 
than $400,000.00. It is through this work that fhe 
City is prepared to meet the contentions of the en-

gineers representing the Gas Company, who have re- 
ceived approximately $1,250,000.00 for their labors. 
The Gas Company has well understood the value of a 
well prepared case and the enormous profit wfhich it 
might obtain from establishing a high value for its 
property. It is fortunate for the gas consumers that 
the members of the City Council have also understood 
the amount of money which inadequate preparation 
to oppose the Company would cost the gas consumers, 
and have provided the necessary funds and ha.ve not 
weakened in their determination to support the in- 
terests of ihe gas consumers. 

The principal work in prospect during the year 1920 
is, therefore, not an immediate trial of the issues of 
fact in the refund litigation, but is the protection of 
the interests of the gas consumers in the establishment 
of new gas rates, which will result from tJhe present 
hearings before the Public Utilities Commission. 
Whether the present gas rates go up or down will be 
determined by these bearings. 

For the prosecution of the Circuit Court litigation I 
believe that only a small appropriation will be neces- 
sary. If the present conference efforts are successful 
a case should be presented in the next few months to 
the Supreme Court and a decision should be obtainable 
before the end of the year whereby, if the City's con- 
tentions are sustained, further work in this case will 
be completely justified. If the Supreme Court should 
reverse the Circuit Court rulings in favor of the City, 
further expense would appear to be unnecessary. I 
believe in fjhe soundness of the rulings of the court in 
sustaining the City's contentions, but if the present 
program, or a Supreme Court review, is successful, 
the only certain expense during the major part of the 
coming year will be for attorney's fees, stenographic 
service, printing and similar expense. For this work 
$7,500.00 seems a fair estimate. 

The hearings before the Public Utilities Commission 
would require a much larger appropriation than it is 
now necessary to ask for, if the usual course of such 
procedure had been followed. If the Gas Company had 
proceeded as it was prepared to proceed at the open- 
ing of this hearing, months would have been taken 
with the presentation of" the Company's inventory and 
the testimony of witnesses appraising the value of the 
innumerable items of its inventory. This would have 
been followed by extensive cross-examination by Coun- 
sel for the City las to items of the inventory and as to 
the pricing, as well as upon the theories of value 
utilized by the Company's experts. It would then have 
been necessary for the City to introduce probably its 
own inventory of the Company's property, and cer- 
tainly its own evidence in lengthy examinations of wit- 
nesses to show the cost of the Company's property and 
the value of that property, according to tihe City's ex- 
perts. Such a proceeding would have taken certainly 
the larger part of the year and possibly a year and a 
half. 

In the Springfield Gas case, which has just reached 
the Supreme Court, over two years elapsed from the 
time when the hearings began and when the Commis- 
sion rendered its opinion, and this hearing involved a 
company small in size compared to The Peoples Gas 
Light and Coke Company. Such a normal course of 
procedure in the present case would have been extra- 
ordinarily expensive, both for the City and for the 



Company. In an effort to avoid this expense, Special 
Counsel for the City suggested at the outset of the 
hearings that a conference be organized between the 
engineers representing the Company and those repre- 
senting the City, presided over by the engineer rep- 
resenting the Utilities Commission, for the purpose of 
obtaining an agreement between witnesses as to all the 
facts which could be agreed upon, in order that testi- 
mony before the Commission (and particularly cross- 
examination) might be limited, so far as possible, to 
merely disputed points of fact and disputed theories 
of law. This suggestion was, after some hesitation, ac- 
cepted both by the Company and by the Commission 
as at least worthy of a trial. The first conferences 
were unqualifiedly successful. After three weeks the 
conferees were able to report an inventory of the en- 
tire property of the Gas Company agreed upon by all 
concerned as correct. This inventory involved modi- 
fications both of the City's inventory and of the Com- 
pany's inventory, but the agreed inventory finally pre- 
sented is more satisfactory to all parties than one which 
would have evolved from presentation of evidence on 
both sides in the usual form. The attorney for the Gas 
Company expressed his opinion to the Commission that 
at least four months' time had been saved and the 
Commission expressed its great satisfaction at the re- 
sults. It may be reported in behalf of the City that we 
could not have sought or expected a better result if 
we had proceeded to use several months in taking 
evidence. 

Encouraged by the success of these conferences, new 
conferences have been organized wherein the engineers 
are pricing the agreed inventory according to three 
theories: The City's theory of original or estimated 
cost; the Company's theory of reproduction cost new, 
as of July 1, 1919, and a third pricing desired by the 
Utilities Commission — a reproduction cost priced as of 
the period 1906 to 1915. Several months will be occu- 
^pied in the year 1920 in the preparation of the oricing 
'evidence for the Commission, and the presentation of 
this evidence. It /ill also be necessary to take extensive 
testimony of witnesses in behalf of the Company and 
of the City concerning the theories of value utilized 
by the parties. It will then be necessary to present 
elaborate briefs to the Commission, analyzing the fig- 
ures presented, the theories involved and the conclu- 
sions of the parties. This will be heavy, arduous work, 
requiring the use of a staff of accountants and engi- 
neers and some legal assistance for Special Counsel for 
the City. A number of the most important questions 
involved in the fixing of a rate for public service have 
not been definitely decided, either by the Supreme 
Court of Illinois or by the Supreme Court of the United 
States. It is in such cases as the present one that rul- 
ing case law is made — cases where the interests are so 
large that the questions may be adequately presented. 
It is of incalculable importance not only to the gas 
consumers, but to all other users of public utility ser- 
vice in the City of Chicago, that the interests of the 
public should be adequately presented in this pro- 
ceeding. 

As in very important case involving many difficult 
questions it is impossible to anticipate every need at 
the present moment. It will be necessary to a cer- 
tain extent to call upon eminent authorities outside of 
the City of Chicago for evidence upon some of the 



Decem'ber 22, 1919.

problems which must be solved. The City cannot af- 
ford to permit the Company, through sheer weight of 
evidence, to present the case of private interests so 
powerfully that the public interests, through feeble 
presentation, will appear to be entitled to less con- 
sideration. Were the City of Chicago in better finan- 
cial condition, a generous appropriation for this val- 
uation and rate fixing hearing should be requested. 
Recognizing, however, the limited financial resources 
of the City at the present time, the requirements for 
this hearing have been reduced to a minimum. For 
the work done under the direction of Edward W. Bemis, 
he has presented the following estimate : 

Office rent and supplies $ 3,870.00 

Engineering services 52,830.00 

Accounting service 15,000.00 

To these I add for legal services, includ- 
ing stenographic service, printing and 

general expense 22,500.00 

For legal services, Circuit Court refund 
litigation 7,500.00 

Total $10'1,700.00 

I do not believe that Dr. Bemis has made an ade- 
quate estimate of the possible necessity of employing 
a few special witnesses when valuation hearings are 
held before the Commission. However, at that time I 
believe it may be possible to reduce the office force 
required during the present conferences so that the ex- 
pense of additional witnesses may then be met out of 
a saving on the office force. 

It would seem obvious that the presentation of a 
case of this character, involving the valuation of the 
property of a Company which has outstanding approx- 
imately $85,000,000 of securities, and which has a sys- 
tem covering the entire City of Chicago, would require 
a considerable force of engineers and accountants in 
aid of the City's attorney. As a matter of fact, a small- 
er force will be required on account of the conference 
procedure adopted, than would have been necessary 
had the usual expensive hearings been carried on be- 
fore the Commission. 

However, for the benefit of those who may not be 
sufficiently familiar with the enormous detail involved 
in such a proceeding, I have asked Dr. Bemis to pre- 
pare a brief statement describing the work to be done, 
as an indication of the necessity for the employment 
of the accountants and engineers provided for in the 
appropriation requested, which statement I have at- 
tached to this report. 

Respectfully submitted, 
(Signed) Donald R. Richberg, 

Special Counsel for the City of Chicago in Gas Matters. 



STATEMENT OF EDWARD W. BEMIS CONCERNING CHARA-CTER 

OF FORCE NEEDED BY THE CITY IN THE GAS 

CONFERENCES AND HEARINGS IN 1920. 

In the estimate of the cost of completing the work 
on The Peoples Gas Light & Coke Company appraisal 
in 1920, the work proposed for our organization can be 
divided into two general classifications, namely, Ac- 
counting and Engineering work. 



The accounting work will consi.st of an analy.sis of 
the Company's books and records from .January 1. 1917, 
to date. This is made necessary by reason of fhe fact 
that the accountants have confined their work in the 
past to the period preceding .January 1, 1917. This was 
the date of the inventory which was compiled by the 
Company and City's engineers and the City has not had 
complete access to the Company's records subsequent 
to that date. It is very necessary, however, for the City 
to determine the existing operating expenses and also 
the cost of the additions to the property subsequent to 
the inventory, if it wishes to be adequately represented 
before the Public Utilities Commission in the hearings 
to determine the final valuation of the Gas Company's 
property and a determination of future rates for gas. 
The accountants have estimated that this work will 
cost approximately $15,000. 

The other branch of the work proposed, namely En- 
gineering, consists in representing the City of Chicago 
in conferences held between the engineers of the City, 
Company and Commission. These conferences have 
been called for the purpose of attempting to agree with 
the Gas Company as to the materials entering into the 
property of the Gas Company and also the base unit 
prices which are to be applied to these units of ma- 
terial in order to arrive at the base cost of the prop- 
erty of the Peoples Gas Light & Coke Company. 

It will be necessary for the City to have three engi- 
neers present at these conferences at all times who are 
familiar with the detail work of pricing the appraisal 
as it has been done by the City's engineers. Two of 
these men will be needed to perform the detailed work 
of comparing the appraisal submitted to the confer- 
ence, the third engineer to represent the City in con- 
ferences between 'Mr. Woolfolk of the Gas Company and 
Mr. Little of the Commission. At these conferences the 
final valuation figures will be arrived at. 

In addition to these men it will be necessary to have 
from two to four people, one of whom will be a comp- 
tometer operator and the others engineers who are 
familiar with computing work and with the entire val- 
uation in order to keep the City's records clear as to 
what has been done in the conferences and in order 
that the proper adjustments may be made in the in- 
ventory based upon the decisions which will be made 
at the conferences proper. It will also be necessary 
to have at least one stenographer in connection with 
this work to do such typing as is necessary and a gen- 
eral clerk to compile the pay roll, requisition supplies 
and do other miscellaneous clerical work in connec- 
tion with the oflRce. 

In addition to the work which the City is proposing 
to do, the Company is planning on performing the main 
bulk of the computations necessary in connection with 
the work of the conferences and to this" end have of- 
fered the services of their entire statistical depart- 
ment to such an extent as may be necessary. The only 
work the City is planning on doing along these lines is 
such work as for obvious reasons cannot be detailed to 
employees of the Gas Company. The Gas Company 
will employ a special force on this work much larger 
than that contemplated by the City's engineers. 

The representatives of the Illinois Public Utilities 
Commission are very enthusiastic over the results

bility of tlie results to be produced in the future both 
from the standpoint of the speed with which the work 
has progressed and the low cost at which this work 
has been done. 

However, this cannot be undertaken by the City with 
a smaller organization than that outlined to you pre- 
viously without the City being very seriously handi- 
capped in its negotiations with the Company. If thus 
handicapped by a reduction in the size of the organiza- 
tinn the total ultimate cost of the work would be con- 
siderably in excess of the figure quoted to you on the 
basis of the organization outlined.

NEW BUSINESS— BY WARDS. 



December 22, 1919. 



Not as a complaint, but rather by way of informa- 
lion concerning certain rletails of routine service not 
generally understood by the public, a patrolman is re- 
quired to be on actual duty seven days a week, less two 
days time off during each month; that in times of 
strikes, or other disturbed conditions affecting the peace 
and safety of the city, his hours of active duty are 
greatly increased, though without any additional pay; 
that if the uniform or equipment purchased and paid 
for by him, is damaged or rendered unfit for use while 
performing his duties, the loss thus occasioned must 
be borne by him; that if he makes an arrest while on 
night duty, he must attend the hearing of the case in 
court during his off-duty hours, and receives no credit 
in time, nor allowance in pay, for the extra service 
performed. 

' Wherefore and because of the circumstances and 
conditions above recited, the patrolmen feel constrain- 
ed to again ask the patient and considerate review by 
your Honorable Body, of all the matters and things in- 
volved in this petition, to the end, that it may be found 
within your good pleasure to grant unto them such 
further increase in pay as will reasonably off-set the 
moneys required to be' expended for uniforms, equip- 
ment, pension fund, benefit assessments, etc., which 
they respectfully suggest, should be not less than three 
hundred dollars, so that there may be available to them 
in free money the amounts now fixed as pay allowanc<', 
viz: $1,440, $1,5(30 and $1,800 in the several grades. 

All of which is submitted with assurances of the 
petitioners' respect and loyal deference to your Hon- 
orable Body. 

Done in pursuance of a unanimous vote of the Chi- 
cago Patrolmen's Social. Athletic and Efficiency Club 
membership, this 28th day of December, 1919..
